4. Twilight, New Moon, & Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
Oh Edward my love! What else can i say to the vampire that i adore?

5. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The best book an adult can read to understand a child. so simple and so full of truth.
The Little Prince
"To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you, I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world…"
